at the u.n. and had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. and the threshold. from the previous to my don't know, 6-12 months the israelis have been focusing on primarily because of the defense minister, what he called the son of immunity. what he meant was, iran was going to of, with the character of the sip their program, the theft of the redundancy, the hardening of the nuclear program would reach a point where the israelis would actually lose their military options. and not just this one, easily accept a situation where they face a threat but no longer have the military option to deal with it. and so what he was trying to say come identify the point at which the zone of immunity, he was saying it would be the end of 2012. he has changed that and said it has been pushed back. when the prime minister was in new york he focused on the point at which the iranians would cross a threshold where there would have the ability to grow the nuclear weapon and you would not be allowed to do anything about it. he was suggesting that would be when they
-integrating everything. for the first 75 years, we have never received the people's republic of china and the u.n. report -- they changed this position on the island. and to me, i don't want to get into that too many details. frankly, this is not the heart of the issue. china is trying to advance. there is an issue with japan. from japan to taiwan, the philippines, this is from the viewpoint of china. china has openly expressed their views on this in maritime security. and those are part of the reality. so this is a kind of comprehensive strategy to advance. >> that is an important point. what you're basically saying is that this is about power and the power -- china is clearly becoming more powerful. you are seeing lines being challenged. i remember talking to george soros once after he broke the back of england -- i'm sorry, broke the bank of england. what he saw as a hedge fund manager basically drove so hard against the wind that fundamentally the institutional power on the bank of england site had to collapse. and i have looked at asia and the test of power in the region, whether it was the vp incid
department to one carry this in the u.n. silica to the international forum, particularly if it continues to escalate, to frame the declaratory policy for the nation's absorbers, but may not be participating so that it's clear and search link of other diplomatic actions that could potentially be taken to cut off the escalation of the activities. in other words, attacks on us for a larger group him et cetera. >> i don't want to take off the table action beyond diplomatic action because they think would've exhausted many potential diplomatic actions and summoning to think what are please to send a strong signal to the leadership in x land and other places including covert actions. >> quick question. so for the u.s. government has said nothing publicly about who they will lose behind the attacks. her speculation and media based on leaks and credible sources, but the u.s. government so far has said nothing publicly. what is your decision assessment as to whether or not he should publicly identify x land behind the attacks and should you give some sort of public proof to why you believe that?
, the role of the security council, and our role in the security council in the u.n. system. almost everything that's important is at stake with this. this is the most critical and most dangerous situation that the administration will be facing in the next year. looking at it, though, and while this year is critical, as den sis said, we have to realize this is not all about some misunderstanding or some fixable problem with iran not getting it about itself civil nuclear program or colliding with the international community. these are all manifestations of the long term confrontation that we, and the rest of the west and the region had with iran as least since the 1970s. this will go on, regardless of whether we get a nuclear deal or we have a strike to prevent iran from moving to the nuclear weapons capability. we're going to have to deal with this problem over the long term just as we have over the last 30 years because it flows from iran's view of its role in the region and inconsistency of that view with the view of the other countries in the region, our values, and our role, bot
clear at the meeting at the u.n. in september, and, of course, now we have very interesting results from two states here from washington state and from colorado, and in addition to the 17 or 18 that where marijuana is used for medicinal purposes and two states to be used for recreational purposes, and we have pressure from the region joined with pressure and trends and shift in public opinion within the united states, which i think contributes an adds to greater pressure on the administration at the national level to rethink its policy and drugs, clearly having a negative effect or perceived to having negative effects in terms of crime and violence and corruption in many countries in latin america. here, again, i think the obama administration would probably say that there's some things to move forward on the issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite changes in the discourse, the elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now, but this, again, this opens some possibilities. the reaction in mexico will be critical where this goes, and president-elect wil
's fixed system on the bottom. it's un-- unmanned underwater vehicles that could be antonymous. we are not far from being able to deploy the system. we'll don't develop in field and integrated unmanned aerial system to froarpt a carrier. this next year, here in this fiscal year 13, we'll do a demonstration of unmanned vehicle from a carrier and recover that will be able to use that system. that will read us to building a system that can operate within our air wings and provide that persistence, maybe support logistics. if we don't have all the system of support the pilot. that's extra weight. extra payload, extra systems, extra capability. and that will be an important part of our future. a few words about our rebalance to the asia-pacific. sustaining appropriate capability in the middle east. it's been a long time focus for the u.s. navy. five of our seven treaty allies are in the pacific. six of the top economies in the largest army in the world are in the asia-pacific. so it makes sense that we would do that. as i have shown you or mentioned on thegraphic there, 50 -- about half
and that will be at a time when the afghan government is in full control of its own sovereignty. the current u.n. security council resolution basis for the current operation will come to an end. you'll need a newly legal basis for the new operation. who would enforce agreements for the 1940s and the north atlantic council is just engaging with the afghan government on what the shape of that mission would be. so there's a mixture of conditions based in the implementation and then there is the beginning of the negotiation about what the next mission will be. but as i said, it will not be a combat mission. the wellbutrin advisory mission, which is part of the long-term commitment of the international community to afghanistan way out over the transformation decade of the tokyo summit this summer. so there's going be amick shared in a fact, military capability building. but the international community and a much broader sense is doing for the very substantial problems of quality develop and comment governments in afghanistan and the individual countries like our own are doing in bilateral programs, which is pa
was condemned by the u.n. security council which expressed deep concerns about m-23. they're known for brutal violence. this is a little baby being passed by a truck hopefully to safety, a victim of the violence growing on with the m-23 rebels who have taken over this part of the congo. some of you may have seen that tragic photo in monday's "new york times." this baby is being hoisted into a packed truck as families try to get out. even more troubling, there is considerable evidence these rebels have and continue to receive strategic and material support from neighboring rwanda just as senator inhofe mentioned on the floor and potentially from uganda as well. news reports indicate the m-23 rebels have access to night vision goggles and other equipment they never had before, indicative of assistance from the rwanda army. we've seen reports that the rwanda -- rwandan army worked side by side with the rebels. a congolese governor stated the army ended the army and forced the congolese military to free. human rights watch have corroborated these reports and confirmed the rwandan government's rol
